A very interesting book which gives a good overview and analysis of Theodore Roosevelt¿s (TR¿s) life, character, and political views. What makes the book unique and especially valuable is the inclusion of numerous political cartoons (some of which are in color) from the period under discussion. The text itself is illustrated with cartoons, and a portfolio of cartoons follows each chapter of TR¿s adult life. Although most of the cartoons are of TR himself, some feature other politicians. Marschall provides descriptions of many of these illustrations, thus enhancing the reader¿s experience of viewing them and providing information about the cartoonist and/or the topic being pictured.Includes extensive bibliography and a citations section, which includes notes about both the cartoons and text of the book.

Anyone that is a fan of Theodore Roosevelt will thoroughly enjoy this book.It is full of political cartoons of Teddy's life. Sadly, we bought it as a gift for a friend's birthday and did not have enough time to read it all, but we did enjoy many of the cartoons. We will be getting an additional copy to enjoy at our leisure. By the way, our friend was thrilled with his gift!
